Does it only apply to flights within the EU?
EU Regulation 261/2004 is an extensive document that states the conditions and prerequisites that pertain to air passenger rights, written in pure legal jargon. However, you don’t need to have studied law or bother with high-brow wording: simply ask our ABL system. Enter your flight details and find out in an instant whether or not the flight entitles you to a compensation claim.
All flights leaving from EU airports generally fall under EU Regulation 261/2004 and therefore, if applicable, entitle you to compensation.
In addition, all flights destined for Europe that are performed by EU carriers are likewise included. This greatly increases the number of cases that are potentially entitled to compensation.
